About Stephen Perkins
We enjoy the Orlando area and attractions and also we play golf. Having spent many visits to the area in different villa's we have taken the opportunity to build our own villa on Ridgewood Lakes Golf Course and in doing so taking into account all the good ideas we have seen from other villas.
Stephen Perkins purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Stephen Perkins chose Ridgewood Lakes
Ridgewood Lakes is a magnificent community with its championship golf course and 24hr secure environment. The views drive and walking around the area is just stunning and makes you feel you are in an exclusive executive area where you can relax. The community is on The 27 just 2 miles from from the I4. It has good access to Disney and is in the recognised Disney area yet it is also accessible to Busch Gardens and Legoland which is on the 27. The Golf course is regarded as one of the top 30 in Florida and when built was also nominated the best new golf course.
What makes this Villa unique
Our villa has golf course frontage provide open views over 2 lakes from the pool area. A large pool 30ft+ designed to allow both swimming and play with in pool seating where you can enjoy the sunset. The hot spa is a good size, very pleasant after you have returned from Disney or an enjoyable round on the golf course. A high quality games room with table football, pool, hockey, table tennis and tv. 2 lounges, a family lounge with TV and wii and a more quieter but equally comfortable lounge wit views directly onto the pool. All bedroom are very spacious. Ridgewood Lakes also has access to on site tennis courts as well as some varied wildlife and birds. There are several eating places, a supermarket and shopping area close to the community.

Perfect home with everything you need to enjoy your stay.
The property is itself beautiful and set in a beautiful location. Upon arrival the exterior view of the house was immaculate, as was it when we stepped inside. The space is enormous - we travelled with 5 adults, 1 teen and 1 baby, it accommodated us all very comfortably with room to spare. The layout provides a lovely family feeling and gets everyone together without feeling overcrowded. The pool area was stunning and the safety net was so useful for the baby. The house was close to all amenities - supermarkets, local hospitals, food places etc and was about an hour drive to the parks (not many miles but the I4 is very busy). The owners were fantastic to deal with, they emailed me back within a couple of hour max every time I emailed with a question/query. Our only regret is that we didn't get enough time to spend in the villa due to our busy itinerary, however we did put a couple of days aside to just enjoy the peace and luxury of the house. The only negative I have is the games room - the pool table had seen better days and the table tennis was broken, however this did not affect us and really would not of mattered if it wasn't even there. I would not hesitate to book this property again if we should ever go to Orlando again, I would recommend this property to my friends and family in a heartbeat and to anyone else out there looking for a fabulous place to stay. Book it, you'll love it - enjoy!!!
Thank you for you positive review. We will be back at the villa in a couple of weeks and take note of you comments on the games room so that we can see what needs to be done to rectify you comments. They were both ok the last time we were there but can be easily damaged.
This Home met and even exceeded our expections! I highly recommend this home to future travelers!
This home was both beautiful and comfortable? My family and I enjoyed our stay immensely!
Great overall experience
Would definitely recommend!
A fabulous two weeks!
We had a wonderful two weeks stay in this beautiful villa.
The location is great with shops and supermarkets close by and despite lots of road works around Disney it took us about half an hour to drive to the parks - maybe a bit longer during rush hour so plan your trips. The actual position of the villa is superb - in a very quiet development and the area is beautifully maintained. The rear view aspect onto the golf course was beautiful and peaceful and the pool area had sun from about 9am right through the day.
The villa is very well equipped and everything is in excellent condition. Plenty of towels and masses of crockery etc. TVs in every bedroom as well. We did not feel we needed for anything.
The master suite is huge and whilst the other bedrooms are considerably smaller, to be honest we had such a busy fortnight that we only just retired to the bedrooms to sleep at night and they were perfectly adequate for a party of adults. Three bathrooms were useful and the open plan kitchen/dining/living area was perfect for a family holiday. The large lanai area with table and chairs was perfect for breakfast or a casual evening meal.
We had a little hiccup with the electronic door code when we arrived but one call to the management company sorted it out and we gained entry after only a 15-20 minute wait, so this was only a very minor inconvenience. It is useful to have their number in your phone when you arrive, just in case though! They seemed helpful and efficient although thankfully we did not have much cause to contact them.
However, by far the best thing about renting this villa was the superb communication with the owners Stephen and Carmella. They could not have been more helpful and this made the whole process so much easier and we traveled to Florida with total peace of mind.
I cannot commend this villa more highly. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Thank you for what is another great review. Sometimes a problems may occur on any vacation. We have teamed up with an excellent Management Company that has 24 hour emergency cover locally. This renter needed to use them to resolve an initial access problem, as expected the response was prompt. It is important to us that we can give you confidence from the time of booking all the way through your holiday.
Very nice home
The house was great, My wife and daughters loved the pool and spa. The only thing is that you will want to have your confirmation printed out with you in order to get through the guarded gate the first time. I didn't have mine printed out and had to go find a place to have it printed so they could have a copy for their records. After that I got a pass for the rest of our stay and we were all set.
A really well presented villa and an excellent family holiday
The initial access to the villa by coded lock was very convenient and everything was in good order when we arrived. The accommodation suited us well as we were with adult children and I paid for the villa but others may find the massive master suite and relatively small 3 other bedrooms a bit unequal. The air con was superb (often overdone elsewhere) with a pleasant temperature day and night. The BBQ was a very useful optional extra and there was plenty of space for the six of us (8 could be short of chairs). The pool heated was a very pleasant temperature and good for playing in but keener swimmers might think it a little small. We did some walking around and the neighbours were extremely friendly and helpful. The golf course is handy with a green fee of $30 but a rather hefty $40 for club rental (although we did persuade them we could share a set (purists ignore!)); there are a lot of lakes on the course so unless you are an incredibly straight hitter take a dozen balls for 2 of you (another $15). We liked the location out on US27 although the traffic on I4 is much heavier than 15 yrs ago which makes getting into Orlando a little slower (30 mins). Very convenient for Busch Gardens and Gulf Coast. Best meal was at Moonfish - excellent. Our villa owner Stephen was a pleasure to deal with and all queries were dealt with very quickly. We all had a great holiday and would recommend to anyone.
The villa is midway on hole 4, Stroke Index 1 of the Ridgewood Lakes Golf Course. This is a magnificent course with open spaces but also plenty of water to challenge. The course is open and has buggies. When built it was considered the best new build in Orlando and now it is considered amongst one of the top 30 throughout Florida. Whilst this will be your home course there are many local courses around including.
Greg Norman's Champions Gate (2 courses). Next exit on I4.
Southern Dunes further along the 27
Reunion (3 courses) further up the I4
Highland Reserve further along the 27
and many more including classic Disney Courses.
Very few courses in Orlando have permission for rental villas.
How to get there
The villa is approx. 30-40 minutes drive down interstate/major roads from Orlando International Airport and a little further from Sanford. Car hire is essential but during driving is easy. You will be provided with access conditions to the villa so you can get immediate access without need of picking up keys from a management company.
Supermarket 1 mile from community entrance.
Family restaurants and shopping mall 2 miles
Disneyworld within 15 minutes
